Just Some Kid

A   L   O   H   A !
" Hugs can do 

great amounts of good -

- especially for children. "

Princess of Wales Diana

 Just somebody else's kids. 

Just like you see every day.

 What is his day like? 

His Questions?    His Future?

Just a kid 

walking with is parents.

Who will he become?

Child of two soldiers.  

What does he worry about?

Do they leave at the same time?

Who can he count on?

What does he understand?

Is that sister to the side?

Just somebody else's kid.

Why does he matter

SO much?


Thank YOU
for Mattering to me-
                     Fondly, cloudia

It's important that we consider all kids as ours to nurture, protect, teach. We're all connected, so every kid is our kid.
Happy Sunday Cloudia.

Kids have had it so hard throughout earth history. It's such a shame. These kids looks like they have it not so bad.

because at the end of the day we are all human, and regardless whose kid they are, they are our future...and why should we judge who gets hugs...even if they got 70 they no longer deserve one more?

aloha from va
